  • This is not your typical factory-type eyeglass mill.  This is a customized service at its finest. Personalized, full-on attention is given to each customer. It's clear their aim is to make every customer a happy one- I can certainly attest to that.

  • I was so impressed with every aspect of the service I received. They are consummate professionals and a font of information for all things eyewear.  McNelly Optical is an independent optical company and they grind the lenses right there!! I wish I'd known about this company years ago.

  • Extremely knowledgeable staff and tremendous service. I won't go anywhere else. They helped me select the ideal frames for my face and lenses that were perfect for what I needed.  My glasses have always been right the first time -never any callbacks!
